So far, characters confirmed for inclusion in the toy line include Rosalina (Super Mario Galaxy), Wario (Super Mario Land 2), Toad (Super Mario Bros.), Luigi (Mario Bros.), Bowser (Super Mario Bros.), Princess Peach (Super Mario Bros.), and the titular jumpman himself.

In addition to the character-inspired cars — sculpted in the style of the hit NintendoSwitch title Mario Kart 8 Deluxe — Hot Wheels also has plans to release tracks inspired by race courses from the long-running game series. The cars will retail for $4.99 each, and are expected to hit stores in June 2019.
